‘Doctors’ Korean Drama Stars Kim Rae Won And Park Shin Hye Secretly Dating In Real Life?

The Korean drama Doctors may have just ended but the chemistry between co-stars Kim Rae Won and Park Sin Hye has fans wondering whether the two actors are dating in real life.


“We cannot but have good chemistry because she really cares about an actor who plays the opposite role,” the 35-year-old actor said during a press conference for the SBS drama in Seoul, Yon Hap News reports.

“There are actors who care only about their roles. But in this drama, Shin-hye and I were all open to each other and thus had no other option but to show good chemistry,” Rae Won added.

The plot of Doctors revolves around the story of Yoo Hye-jung played by Park Shin Hye. When she was in high school, Yoo was a bully but she changes her ways due to the influence of her homeroom teacher Hong Ji-hong, played by Kim Rae Won. Fast forward a couple of years and Yoo meets Hong again when they’re both employed as doctors at a hospital. They fall head over heels in love with one another.

Doctors premiered on June 20, 2016, and had a 20-episode run until August 23. This K-drama was pretty successful from day one according to Yon Hap News. Viewership for the romantic comedy ranked the highest among all Korean dramas in the same time slot on Mondays and Tuesdays. Its final episode garnered a 20 percent share of the viewing audience, which is pretty impressive.

During the press conference, Kim was asked if he ever felt uncomfortable acting romantic scenes with an actress who is almost 10 years younger than him. The actor said that that part was easy.

“Park and other junior actors rather felt comfortable with me and treated me like their brother who is a few years older than them,” Rae Won said. “So everything went naturally without having to discuss much about how to act.”

According to Yon Hap News, he did, however, admit that he changed his hairstyle so that he could blend in with the younger male actors on set.

Kim added that he couldn’t be more happy about the success of Doctors.

“I’m really happy because viewers loved the drama very much,” he said, adding that he would love to do another romantic drama if possible. This was the first romantic series that Kim Rae Won has done in five years since A Thousand Days’ Promise in 2011. His other Hallyu dramas include 2003’s Rooftop Room Cat, 2004’s Love Story in Harvard, and 2004’s My Little Bride. After that, Kim became known for playing more serious dramatic roles.

“I want to do a doctor character once again, in a really professional way next time. If I had more time, I would have visited an operating room to watch how doctors work,” he said.

According to All K-Pop, Kim Rae Won also recently addressed rumors that he will be getting married soon. He said that the answer to that question is no.

“I don’t know. I filmed two movies and have a lot to do still. [Marriage] probably won’t be for another few years. I’m not self-centered, but I have big dreams for the 2nd leg of my career,” Kim Rae Won said during a recent interview.

Given the popularity of the series, questions about a Doctors Season 2 have already started to pop up. The show has not officially been renewed as yet, Yibada reports, so it’s unsure whether we will see Kim Rae Won and Park Shin Hye on screen together again.
